Since becoming the NCF's second overseas cleft mission service country in 1999, Filipino seed practitioners trained by the NCF has actively developed a craniofacial team and expanded this treatment model in the Philippines over the past 10 years. As a result, Philippines’ first craniofacial center, Our Lady of Peace Craniofacial Center, was established in 2003. In 2008, the Philippines established the Smile Train Craniofacial Center, the first center in the country offering NAM and speech therapy services. The Smile Train Craniofacial Center specializes in integrating various specialties to provide treatment services for craniofacial patients from birth to adult years, and providing free treatments for impoverished patients.


After its official establishment in 2006, the Noordhoff Craniofacial Foundation Philippines, Inc. has been responsible for the operation and integration of both craniofacial centers’ resources. It is also responsible for collaborating with Our Lady of Peace Hospital, Philippine General Hospital, and other hospitals in providing medical services to patients. The operation of the affiliated foundation is becoming more mature and is already able to hold large-scale fundraising events, steadily becoming more independent.
